Angle: The Veterans of Foreign Wars “betrayed America” by endorsing liberals

It's from a missive "From the Desk of Sharron Angle" under the mangled header, "Sharron Angle: Don't Allow are (sic) Veterans to be Betrayed any longer"

And the email, first reported by the Nevada News Bureau's Elizabeth Crum, also contains this priceless paragraph:

The founding principles of our nation have been under siege for some time. It's not just radical groups like al-Qaeda that threaten our liberty, either. Many of our own elected leaders have decided that the Constitution is archaic and, therefore, can be ignored! (Case in point: nationalized healthcare.) Modernized communication technologies, the liberal media, and Alinsky-like doctrine have accelerated a moral decline and an historical ambivalence that threaten the American way of life for us and future generations. Fortunately, there is something you and I can do about it: join or support Veterans in Defense of Liberty today.

Here it is:

Fellow American Patriot,

As a proud American, I was very disappointed when Veterans of Foreign Wars-PAC (VFW-PAC) betrayed America and American Veterans by endorsing liberal members of Congress like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and Ron Klein in the last election, instead of standing with principled candidates (and fellow Veterans) like Jesse Kelly (AZ-8), Ilario Pantano (NC-7) and Allen West (FL-22).

It is the duty of America's Veterans (and all active duty and reserve military personnel) to defend the Constitution against foreign and domestic enemies. But when VFW-PAC chose Washington money politics over the will of its Veteran constituency and mission, it left a void in the already poorly, politically represented Veterans community. That's why a group of concerned veterans have united to defend the Constitution and the liberties it protects by forming Veterans in Defense of Liberty.

Veterans in Defense of Liberty (ViDoL) is dedicated to promoting conservatism in the tradition of the Founding Fathers in order to maintain the integrity of our Republic's constitutional, moral and biblical principles through the use of political action and education. I'm proud to be a part of this organization as a member of the Advisory Board, and I hope you will consider becoming involved in it as well.

Members and supporters of ViDoL still believe that our great country and Constitution are worth defending. If you also believe, as they do, that the oath you took as a member of the U.S. military did not fade away when you took off your uniform for the last time, I would like to extend to you an invitation to join Veterans in Defense of Liberty today. Please follow this link to select your membership level.

Although you do have to be a Veteran to become a member of ViDoL, you do not have to be a Veteran to share these beliefs. That's why you can still play a key role in supporting the mission of ViDoL by making a generous contribution to ViDoL's advocacy branch. Please follow this link to make your contribution today.

The founding principles of our nation have been under siege for some time. It's not just radical groups like al-Qaeda that threaten our liberty, either. Many of our own elected leaders have decided that the Constitution is archaic and, therefore, can be ignored! (Case in point: nationalized healthcare.) Modernized communication technologies, the liberal media, and Alinsky-like doctrine have accelerated a moral decline and an historical ambivalence that threaten the American way of life for us and future generations. Fortunately, there is something you and I can do about it: join or support Veterans in Defense of Liberty today.

The Obama Administration has demonstrated that it will continue to pursue unconstitutional legislation like Obama-care, more jobs-killing policies, new stifling regulations and increased federal spending at a level that will paralyze our nation's economic health. But with your help, ViDoL will recruit, educate and train principled individuals who share our beliefs and our willingness to defend our Constitution to run for public office in the next election.

Members of ViDoL are ready to stand between us and tyranny but upholding their oath and defending and protecting the Constitution. They did this once in uniform, now they are doing it as a very special part of "we the people."

If you are ready to tackle this challenge and uphold the values that you and I cherish, please follow this link to become a member of Veterans in Defense of Liberty, or support ViDoL's mission by making a generous contribution here.

Thank you in advance for your support and willingness to defend the American constitution.

Sincerely,

Sharron Angle

Advisory Board, Veterans in Defense of Liberty

Candidate for Congress, Nevada's 2nd District

P.S. Do you believe our Constitution and the traditional values upon which it is based is that which allows for American Exceptionalism? Do you believe that they are worth securing for us and our posterity? If so, please help Veterans in Defense of Liberty elect individuals who are dedicated to our mission of defending the Constitution by joining or supporting our efforts with a generous contribution.
